I would have to go with the small crops and big woods.The larger woods could provide mast trees and other protective cover that are benefical to the deer and after the crops are cut they loose all there cover and may leave the area.

Droptine makes some good points here. Is there an option C of both? IMO, not only does it depend on what crops are in the fields, but the time of year and what type of land is around it. If your fields are the only food source and everything else around you is timber, it would be hard to say no to the food. I love corn fields, they produce and hold deer year around. In my area the deer love standing corn and when it comes down it becomes one of the major food sources. However, if it were beans, the deer hit it early but migrate to other food sources later in the year, so in that case I would take the timber. You best option is BOTH.

ok the wood lot runs north to south there is going to be bean to the east on the other side or to the west i am unsure i will know soon when i can get out there there seem from the map i found on each side and there seems to be a small pond on the south east corner which i think will make for a good spot it seems to be the only water around unless the deer make a run across a divided highway
